Chorus For Maine her "squatters" sends to town>
On legislative station; The "Boston host" to batter down.
Those guardians of the nation.

Chorus

"Exterminate" this faction,
And save this hapless sinking land, By such a noble action.
Chorus
When Maine &c. «

Our former arts will practise;
Each democrat shall rue the hour, When first he dare detract us.
Chorus When Maine £ft.
5 Each noble and ignoble Fed> And Feds of each gradation; And all, who fed'ral vengeance dread, Attend this exhortation.
Chorus When Maine &c»
